Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

OJ Mabizela's South Africa has won the right to host the 2010 World Cup finals after holding off the challenge of Morocco.

The announcement of the vote by FIFA president Sepp Blatter in Zurich was greeted with delight from the South African bid delegation including former president Nelson Mandela.

The favourites beat Morocco 14-10 in the final vote to become the first African country to host the event.

We actually signed South African skipper and defender OJ after our trip to promote the country's 2010 bid last summer.
